Floral, dense and intensely coloured, it has 50% each of whole bunches and new wood, violet and aniseed aromas, succulent tannins and intense blueberry and black cherry fruit. Not cheap, but this is as good as many Premiers Crus. 


91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Showing very well, bursting with aromas of cassis, black cherries, dark chocolate, smoked meats, licorice and rich loamy soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and voluminous, with an enveloping core of fruit, powdery tannins and a long, lingering finish. This is one cuvée where the better-integrated barrel régime and lighter touch with extraction really make themselves felt, and readers might wish to think of this year's Coeur du Roy as a baby Charmes-Chambertin. 

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

An elegant, seductive bouquet of pure raspberry and wild strawberry scents. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe sappy red fruit, good structure and very well-integrated new oak toward the finish. This has good potential. 

Neil Martin, Vinous.

An equally fresh nose offers up notes ripe cassis, black raspberry, earth and plenty of sauvage nuances. The exceptionally rich and caressing medium-bodied flavors terminate in a dusty, youthfully austere and palate coating finish that makes it clear that this is built-to-age. *Outstanding*.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

The wine is exceptionally deep purple black in colour. The bouquet is exceptionally heady too, certainly very ripe aromatically. The lush weight of fruit covers the acidity well, with just a touch of raspberry and redcurrant saving the black fruit from lacking balance. A little bit dry on the tannins at the back.
